The 96" FHWA/DOT elongated turn arrow stencil is one of the newest industry standard stencils that offers flexibility and longevity to any roadway or driving lane project. This stencil is a must-have for any professional contractor’s or striper’s collection as it offers a sleek design that is built to last. The arrow is more narrow than standard stencils, and it is designed to be thinner than the barrel of a car so that the tires do not run over it or wear it out. The elongated design of the stencil provides better readability for drivers coming from a distance, offering clear and concise direction so that drivers will know what type of turn is coming up. It is most commonly used in right or left turn lanes, and can be combined with other elongated stencils such as “LEFT", “RIGHT", “TURN", and “ONLY" for added clarity. This stencil is made in the USA and offers a warranty that guarantees the stencil to be free of any defects or impediments.
The most recommended material grade for this type of stencil is the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE, which is a common industry standard. This material is most used by professionals in the field, and offers a durable stencil that will last many years. Contractors can reuse this stencil thousands of times over the course of a decade before it ever begins to show any signs of wear or tear. This is an affordable grade option for those who plan on using the stencil frequently.
The measurements and specifications of the stencil comply with FHWA standards. When painted, the arrow measures 32" in width and 96" in height, with a tail stroke of 8" for added visibility. The material itself measures 32" wide by 102", giving several inches of space around all sides to allow for overspray. The bridging on the stencil complies with industry standards and is built to allow for easy application, easy cleanup, and easy transportation.
